A beautiful thrush sitting on our garden fence. I am notoriously unlucky with bird shots, but today I noticed this beautiful bird sitting on top of one of the rainwater barrels in our back garden out of our kitchen window. There was no hope of a shot, as they tend to fly off as soon as I open the back door. On this occasion though, because I wanted a picture of this lovely bird so much, I prayed to God that I would be able to capture it. I had no sooner got my camera from upstairs and gone into the garden than it alighted on the fence, seemingly oblivious to me. I actually got several shots, but this first one was the best. So you see, God does answer prayers! Taken in our garden in the North-East of England with my Canon PowerShot SX40 HS camera in Auto mode. Enjoy this interesting video about song and mistle thrushes! I think that this bird is a song thrush.
